Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ready to Raise ‘Shell’ Again on the Big Screen

Cowabunga, dude! The mega-popular ’80s franchise ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is ready to make a big return to movie theaters in advance of their upcoming 30th anniversary. Paramount, Nickelodeon and producer Michael Bay are teaming up to bring back the “Heroes in a Half-Shell” with an all new reboot of the classic series.

Director Jonathan Liebesman (‘Battle: Los Angeles’, the forthcoming ‘Wrath of the Titans’) has been hired to find a way to bring the property, which once featured stuntmen in rubber suits and the voice of Corey Feldman, to the current day.

According to Slashfilm, the new ‘TMNT’ film will employ motion-capture technology, not unlike what Fox did with the ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ remake. That sounds great because those apes looked awesome, but keep in mind those apes were photo-real. The Ninja Turtles were always meant to be a little cartoonish because, after all, they’re turtles who are masters of martial arts.

The ‘Ninja Turtles’ franchise spawned 21 videogames, four films, three TV shows and one Vanilla Ice rap song, which you can watch below. Just try getting this one out of your head.
